Kiefer Wants to Go to Jail -- But Not County

12/5/2007 8:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Kiefer Sutherland is at an L.A. County Courthouse and the judge has agreed to let him serve his time at a jail run by the city of Glendale rather than the perilous Twin Towers county facility.

Sutherland will serve his 48 days at the Glendale City Jail. He must complete his sentence by the end of March. He then faces 60 months of informal probation -- meaning he doesn't have to see a probation officer, pay a fine, complete 18 months of an alcohol education program and undergo six months of weekly alcohol therapy sessions.

t makes lots of sense for Kiefer to choose a city jail. Sources say Twin Towers has become a nightmare of violence, and jailers cannot guarantee the safety of high-profile inmates.

The probable option if Sutherland chose Twin Towers is that he would be placed in "the hole" -- a solitary confinement area in which he would spend 23 hours a day alone.

This is not a typical "pay for stay" program. Rather, Kiefer will serve a regular county jail sentence through the City jail inmate worker program.

This guy's been a drunk and drug abuser for 25 years. He is so self-involved he never makes the effort to straighten out his life. He'll do about half of the 48 days and then he'll be out swerving all over the road again in about 2 weeks. Let's all hope and pray that he adopts some concern for his fellow man (and woman) before he kills some one through selfishness. You'll recall that this is why Julia Roberts ended things with him back in the 80s.
HE'S A "LOST BOY" all right!

Boo Freakin Hoo....if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. I couldn't care less if you're a pampered celeb or not. "Place me over there, me no likee to get hurt"

If these idiots would stop drinking and driving, or doing drugs, they wouldnt have this problem. I have no sympathy for them at all...

He deserves to go to a regular jail! The whole family is a bunch of jerks! I saw his dad at a restaurant last night, said hello, totally ignored us with his nose in the air, and his whole entourage (which were probably the designated drivers!) laughed because we pointed him out! How funny it will be when NO ONE recognizes any of the Sutherlands!!! JERKS!

Another celebrity better-than-everybody treatment just because is a celebrity. California justice is a sham and disgusting. California justice system should be investigated by the FBI for its under the table money paying which is what it is. I wonder how much is this judge being payed to grant this privilege to Keifer Sutherland?. I hope is a lot. I think all US criminals should move to California, is a State that is quite easy on law-breakers. Disgusting. What kind of example this gives to the rest of the country and the new generation. Go to California, break the law and get away with murder and an easy sentence. Cool!!!!

Hey SwastaNG ...
We've got enough money to pay our taxes, (support you), buy new homes, new cars, new motorcycles, new boats and just about anything else that our heart desires. Those of us that obey the law don't care WHAT you thug-life, nasty underwear exposing social outcasts do. We won't be in lock-up with your ilk anyway.
Just get my to-go order ready and shut the hell up! I'm LOVIN' it!
